Discovery Bay is nearly done renovating its pool, and it is set to open for summer swimming.

Discovery Bay is nearing completion on its pool refurbishment, a project begun more than three years ago.

“We have passed all county inspections and are working on landscaping,” said Recreation Programs Supervisor Monica Gallo. “It’s looking great, the progress is exciting, and we are planning to be open this summer. We are looking to hire lifeguards and swim instructors in preparation for the summer swim season.”

Renovations began on the pool in 2018, but were paused while the town considered installing a new, competitive pool. In October of 2020, the town’s Community Services District board voted to finalize plans to continue refurbishment, extending the length of the pool from 70 to 75 feet. The cost of the project today is $405,114.
